Dream Big: Engineering Our World

See "Dream Big" at UNI. From the Great Wall of China and the world's tallest buddings to underwater robots, solar cars ans smart sustainable cities, "Dream Big" celebrates the human ingenuity behind engineering marvels big and small. With its inspiring stories of human grit and aspiration, and extraordinary visuals for the world's largest screens, "Dream Big" reveals the compassion and creativity that drive engineers to create better lives for people and a more sustainable future for us all.

Monthly STEM Chat: K12 STEM Education Funding

The September UNI STEM Chat session will begin with introductions and sharing of upcoming STEM events and opportunities across campus. Following the September topic will be changes to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title Programs affecting STEM: Opportunities and Challenges. We will specifically discuss the changes to Title II & Title IV. The Chats are open to all. Bring your lunch and network with other faculty and staff. 

New Dimensions in Art and STEM with 3D Printing - For Girls

Bring your creativity and watch your ideas come to life! You will create exciting art and design projects by developing skills in 3D modeling and printing. Learn all about 3D modeling and design, reverse engineering, and additive manufacturing (3D Printing). Experience printing in plastic and sand and pour a casting of one of your own designs in UNI's foundry. Tour local companies and hear from guest speakers about how they use 3D printing. You will head home with your custom designs! Registration is required.

Ultimate Sumo Robotics

Build your own fighting sumo robot in just one week! Design, build, program, and test your own mini-sumo robot then challenge fellow campers to a match of power and wits in the sumo ring (like Japanese Sumo wrestlers). Can your robot expel all challengers while holding its ground? Everyone will exit the ring and the week with new design and programming skills,knowledge of autonomous vehicle robotics and their own robot to take home. Registration Required.

Mastering Multplayers

Get your game on! Campers will explore the server side of online gaming through Minecraft and Steam-based game servers. Deploy and manage (and play!) a multiplayer game server on a cloud-based service. Tackle network setup, server configuration, security constraints, and game customization through modules (‘mods), plug-ins and extensions. Registration is required.

renewabLE energy is GOod

This camp is designed by UNI Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) faculty to inspire talented middle school students and build a foundation for understanding energy, power generation, renewable energy sources, science, engineering, and technology. Spend the week at the UNI Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) facility exploring energy sources, especially renewable energy. Get your hands on EET lab equipment (including solar panels, wind tunnel, and turbine) to investigate circuits, generators and motors. Once you’ve got the basics of energy down, you will work in teams with LEGO Renewable Energy Kits to solve a series of challenges. Registration is required.

Introduction to Robotics

Campers will form teams to design and build Lego EV3 robots. Team members will work together programming their robots to solve a variety of simulated problems. For boys and girls with no previous experience through beginner level robotics and programming experience. This camp will build programming, design and problem solving skills in an exciting and fun environment. Registration is required.

Camp Multimedia

Camp MultiMedia is a week-long summer camp that offers middle-school-aged campers the opportunity to become creators, and not just consumers, of digital media. For almost a decade, CMM has introduced campers to innovative technology that is already related to their interests as consumers of media. Importantly, while campers acquire notable technological skills (in programming or software use or hardware modification) they are also given instruction to apply aesthetic principles to the artifacts that they design. This year’s specializations include: 3-D Modeling and Printing, Video Game Design, Advanced Video Game Design (Minecraft & Raspberry Pi) & Photo and Video for Social Media. Registration is required.
